Samenvatting

For many districts, the improvement process can seem like trying to nail Jello to the wall. This fieldbook shows how to avoid a haphazard approach by focusing on all aspects of the system and specific issues that have most impact upon student achievement. This multidimensional process also entails increasing the competencies of everyone involved and implementing solutions districtwide. The authors outline a proven framework and offer step-by-step guidance for addressing the essential components and competencies of the local educational system. Key strategies include: Concentrating on aligning curriculum, instruction, and assessment to state and Common Core State Standards Working on the underlying issues and people that impact the system Gathering support from all staff members to maximize time, resources, and energy.

Recensie(s)

The authors provide decades of high-quality professional development and hands-on work with schools and school districts. I appreciate and applaud their efforts to translate research on data use, professional development, leadership, and collaboration into tools and processes useful to educators. -- Victoria Bernhardt, Executive Director, Education for the Future This book challenges leaders to focus on what is most important and identifies the improvement efforts required to achieve dramatic results in the classrooms. It is brimming with ideas on how to transform education systemically and provides teachers, administrators, and leaders with a comprehensive resource to improve student achievement. -- Debra Paradowski, Associate Principal This is the most comprehensive approach to improving a school system that I have seen in one text. I would absolutely recommend this book to my colleagues. -- Diana Pratt, Assistant HS Principal (retired) The vignettes pulled everything together and increased my understanding of the phases. The tips for building relationship between team members and dealing with sensitive issues are also very helpful. -- Debbie Langford, School Counselor This book not only describes processes and strategies but provides the tools needed for those leading the process. This is a process that a campus or district leader could use that would examine and use the resources they already have and is not another program they need to buy. -- Cynthia Stone, Director of School Improvement The working systemically model provides a research-based approach to school improvement. The clearly defined step-by-step approach will assist any school or district in its improvement efforts. My professional practice has been significantly changed as a result of my direct experience implementing SEDL's working systemically approach. -- Sally Bennett, Curriculum Coordinator This book is a critical roadmap to district and school transformation. It takes the guess work out of determining where improvement is needed. -- Freda Hicks, Assistant Principal
